the human brain!
The brain contains 78% water and air, 10% fat and 8% protein.
The average weight of human brain is 1.5 kg.
Contains 160,000 km blood vessels.
Consists of 100 billion neurons. Wow, same number of stars in our galaxy!
The brain feel no pain because it has no pain receptors.
brain structure
The brain is divided to cerebrum, cerebellum and brain-stem.
1. Frontal lobe
2. parietal lobe
3. occipital lobe
4. temporal lobe
frontal lobe:
1. Motor functions.
3. Language and meaning.
2. Emotional response and empathy.
4. Memory for habits and motor activities.
5. Impulse control.
6. Making judgment.
9. Planning and problem-solving.
8. Concentration and attention span.
7. Reasoning, forward, and critical thinking.
10. Higher order function: conscious thought.
Spatial orientation and body position.
Pain and touch sensation.
Information processing.
Visual attention.
Face recognition.
Understanding the concept of time.

temporal lobe
Memory acquisition and learning.
Hearing ability and auditory perception.
Understanding spoken language and rhythm.
Emotional response.
Some visual perception.
Categorization and ordering of subjects.
occipital lobe
Visual perception.
Color recognition.
Depth perception.
Motion detection.
How can my brain
helps me learn
there are 3 major ways in processing memory:
1) Encoding
2) Storage
3) Retrieval
encoding is a process when we encode the memory of an event, person, object or stimuli that are sensed to be important!
For example, when we are on vacation and we meet a handsome stranger at a beach, we want to remember his face.
Encoding allows the perceived item of use or interest to be converted into a construct that can be stored within the brain and recalled later from short term or long term memory.
at this stage, the memory is kept or stored in the brain to be used in due time.
It is time to recall the memory that has been encoded in the brain for use.
The explanation is linked to the previous example, when we meet the same stranger at the beach few days ago, we will:

1) recognize his face straight away through our visual memory.
2) his voice due to our auditory complex.
3) his name from our speech center.
How does your brain recognize faces?
